Seattle-based Sabey Data Center Properties has announced that it has entered a strategic alliance with New York based Repeater Communications Group, LLC, to market and manage the development of its $1 million-dollar antenna superstructure atop Intergate.Manhattan, its 560-ft-tall facility at 375 Pearl Street in Lower Manhattan.
Since its installation last year, the triple-tier, line-of-sight connectivity array has already attracted customers including several government agencies, broadband ISPs, and others.
“From atop 375 Pearl Street, line-of-sight providers can reach thousands of buildings in the metropolitan area. We are delighted to partner with Repeater Communications Group because they are tremendous self-starters. They are one of the largest rooftop site operators in the Northeast,” said Robert Rockwood, president, Sabey Data Centers.
“The investment that Sabey has made in 375 Pearl Street is second to none. This building is ideally positioned to become the premier rooftop communications hub serving downtown and midtown Manhattan as well as Downtown Brooklyn. We are very excited to be working hand in hand with the team at Sabey to achieve this goal,” said Paul Eisenberg, co-managing member of Repeater Communications.
The unobstructed, 360-degree vantage point atop 375 Pearl Street is an ideal location for enterprises that require wireless backup connectivity in the event of a fiber communications disruption, such as ISPs that offer point-to-point service, as well as wireline connectivity.
A rooftop point of presence at Intergate.Manhattan also gives customers immediate fiber access to Sabey’s 20 + on-site carriers at the Meet Me Room on the building’s sixth floor. Customers may also install a ¼-to-full rack of communications equipment on the floor directly below the roof. At present, the rooftop superstructure at 375 Pearl Street can support upwards of 300 antennas.
